After two games in Örnsköldsvik, it was time for the first game at Hovet in the hockey Allsvenskan final. Djurgården wanted to take command in the match series against Modo, but the first period was goalless.
"It's even. We create a lot but we don't get the puck in," said Liam Ohgren on C More's broadcast.
Instead, it was the guests who took the lead. With five and a half minutes left in the second period, Erik Jinesjö Karlsson made it 1–0 on a rebound from close range. The home crowd showed their displeasure, when Linus Klasen was knocked down in a situation with Josef Ingman just before the goal.
"It was a bit of an unusual goal maybe. Not the hardest thing I've done, but oh so important, says Jinesjö Karlsson.
Just mentioned Ingman came into focus also in the third period. The Modo player went on a penalty – and Djurgården equalized in the powerplay. Daniel Brodin, who scored last game in extra time, became the home team's top scorer.
As in the first two final matches, the third final was also decided in extra time. There, Modo drew the longest straw, after a goal by David Bernhardt.
